Please read below for a more detailed description of our home:
This 7,000 SQ FT unique HISTORIC ESTATE built in 1859 (before the civil war) is a gem with BREATHTAKING VIEWS of OPEN SKIES and sounds of nature. Set on over 5.5 ACRES, our historic farm house is less than an hour from Manhattan. Close enough to be convenient but far enough to gaze countless stars in the darkened night sky. It offers lots of privacy inside and out. Our home is perfect of events (corporate and private), filming locations, and just a weekend getaway.
Our pre-civil war home was built in 1859, one year before Abraham Lincoln was elected president. It features an intimate living room with original hand carved moldings and wide-board floors, a formal dining room with plenty of seating as well as a large entertainment room perfect for a wedding/party with attached sunroom, and wrap-around decks. There are seven very comfortable bedrooms with plush beds and unique sleep enhancing toppers and five full bathroom. Our first-floor bedroom, which has a wheelchair accessible bathroom, is perfect for older relatives who may not be able to climb one of our four staircases leading to the bedrooms on the second and third floors. Guests love our third-floor bedrooms. Intimate and open, the bedrooms are perfect for large get-togethers, reunions, weddings and families who treasure the rare occasions to all be together.
Inside our farmhouse mansion, you will enjoy old and new. Our 3-story home can SLEEP up to 27 adults plus a few airbeds to accommodate extra guests. You and your guests will enjoy serenity, peace, and privacy. Our farmhouse has plenty of BALCONIES and 2 covered DECKS. These are great for enjoying your early morning coffee while watching the sunrise or for an evening cup of tea while watching the sunsets. Our 2 covered decks still afford you to do this even in the winter time. This is one of our favorite parts of the house.
We have enough parking for 30 cars. In addition to our driveway, which can fit 15 cars, we also have parking down at our barn, free of charge.
We are located less than an hour outside of NYC. The easiest way is to drive here. However, you can take public transport. There is a train stop (Harriman), which is 1.8 miles from our house, or a bus (1.2 miles from our house). There are several cab companies and we also have UBER.
